Hey everybody. I am just so happy with your support of keeping this up. I want to thank all my friends out there and all of you that have been so loyal as to keep this post up. I hope you enjoy the chapters!
And I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I have a good idea of how this story is going to go and that I shouldn't have any more trouble thinking of ways to finish the chapter. The bad news is that the story is going to finish up soon and after that, I won't be able to go to nick.com anymore.
I'm so sorry. It's not that I don't love the boards here, it's just I'm in high school now and there's a lot more work now. And pretty soon I'm going to more difficult classes and working on the weekends and...This story will be my first and my last.
Just know everyone, that the Kung Fu Panda spirit will always be with me and that bond will never break. That I will keep all of you in heart. Do not worry. I am still here for now. We need not say goodbye just yet.
The door opened as the meal slid in. Then, the door was quickly shut and locked. The two cubs and the pup woke up from the sound of the door slamming. They went over to the meal to have their lunch.
"I think we overslept again." Jeia said.
"Don't worry about it. It's not like they need us or anything." Delgado said.
"Yeah." Tigress agreed
The 3 went over to the big plate and saw that they never had this kind of food. It was fried chicken.
"What is this?" Delgado asked.
"I'm not sure. But I'll try it if you guys won't." Tigress said.
"What if it's bad?" Jeia asked.
Tigress just shrugged. Delgado went in to sniff it and does so for a while.
"Delgado, what's wrong?" Jeia asked.
"I recognize this smell." Delgado said, taking the leg off and giving it one bite.
"How is it?" Jeia asked.
"I know this! It's chicken! It's the best food ever!" Delgado said as he voraciously ate the meat off the leg.
Jeia took the other leg and pull it off. She sniffed it a couple of times and took a little bite. Jeia nodded as the flavor agrees with her taste buds.
"This is good! Tigress, come on! Try it!" Jeia exclaimed.
"You guys go ahead. I'm going to break out of here and try to make more friends, so they won't call us monsters anymore." Tigress said as she perked through the little hole on her door.
In the background of Jeia, Delgado finished his chicken leg and was now viciously gnawing on the bone.
"Not this again. I dont think it's a good idea, Tigress. You know we're going to be treated like this no matter what we do." Jeia said.
"Come on. We can do this!" Tigress replied, now picking the lock with her claw.
Without paying attention to the felines, Delgado was still gnawing. Then, accidentally bit his right paw. He licked it over and over as a bit of blood came out. Then when it stopped, his eyes shifted slowly back to his bone. Without thinking, he went back to his bone and gnawed.
Tigress finally unlocked the door, opened it, and quickly went out in a flash.
"Tigress, wait!" Jeia shouted.
But it was too late to bring her back. She was already out of sight.
Delgado finished his last pieces of the bone and went over to Jeia. "Don't worry. She'll be fine and when she comes back, she'll know the truth."
Just as the door closed, the small figure saw Tigress. Tigress stared back. It was a brown wolf pup boy with light blue eyes. Instead of a fierce or shy personality Tigress expected, it just turned happy. The wolf sat up, tongue out, and wagged his tail back and forth at the feline.
"Hi! I'm Delgado! What's your name?" He asked.
"Tigress. Nice to meet you, Delgado." Tigress replied.
Then, in the corner of his eye, he saw something shift under the bed. He went in front of Tigress and stared angrily under the bed, fur pricked up and fangs baring.
"Don't worry, Tigress! I'll protect you!" The ever so loyal Delgado assured as he growled.
For her own defense, Jeia snarled back and used her claws to scratch the hound. But before anything else happens, Tigress broke the fight.
"Delgado, stop!" Then, Delgado stopped and looked up to the feline. "It's only my best friend, Jeia." Tigress said.
"Oh." Delgado said. He looked under the bed and said, "I'm sorry. I didn't know you were a friend."
Jeia did nothing so Tigress said, "It's ok. He won't hurt you. He's a friend too."
At first the panther didn't reply. But slowly popped her head out of the bedside. She looked intently at the wolf and then slid her whole body out.
Delgado held out his paw and asked, "Forgive me?"
The panther was hesitant, she barely knew him and the first impression wasn't great. But she trusted Tigress and took it.
"I guess youre staying with us. We're all going to be best friends, huh?" Tigress asked.
The room was dark. A young tigress was all alone in her room, sitting in the corner doing nothing but scratching the rock-hard wall. Then, the door opened. Tigress didnt dare to turn. She heard a thump and the door closing. The thump was made from something being thrown in the room. Tigress looked behind her and saw two red eyes in the other corner of the room. The tiger quickly went on all fours, fur pricking up as she growled at the person.
"Who are you!?" Tigress asked.
As a response, the thing was frightened and hid under the bed. The tiger eased up, knowing the thing is scared. Tigress stood up and turned on the lightbulb. Then she kneeled down and looked under the bed. Even with the lights on, it was hard to see who it was.
Tigress sighed and said, "I'm not going to hurt you. Come on out."
Tigress stood up again and stepped out of the way for the visiter. There was a long silence and much hesitation, but Tigress was patient. Then, the figure finally got out, looking at the tiger the whole time. When it was completely out, it sat in the corner in fear. Tigress looked at it. It was a black panther, just about her age. Judging by the figure, it looks like a girl.
"Hi." Tigress said.
"....hi." The panther said.
"My names Tigress. Whats yours?"
"Well, Jeia, this is my room. I guess you're going to be with me. I'll be good with you. Shake on it?" Tigress said, holding out her paw.
Hesitant, Jeia took it lightly and shook it.
A few years later
Tigress playfully tackled Jeia and also nipped her ear gently. Jeia striked back by nipping her neck and using her claws to grip lightly around her. They continued to play until they were worn out.
"Tigress?" Jeia asked.
"Yeah?" Tigress replied.
"You're my best friend." Jeia said.
"You're my best friend too." Tigress replied with a smile.
"Were going to be best friends forever, right?" Jeia asked.
"Forever and ever." Tigress replied.
Jeias smile grew wide and pounced right on top of her. They both laughed together in joy.
"Where's our dinner? It should be here by now, right?" Jeia asked the tiger as she got off her.
The cub replied, "Maybe there's a delay. Don't worry."
Jeia just shrugged it off. Then a few moments later, the door opened. Jeia, as shy and scared as ever towards everyone except tigress, quickly hid under the bed. Tigress knows her well and let her be. But if something were to happen, she would always protect her. Tigress expected their food to come in. But instead, a small figure slid in.
Wow! Delgado's in line to be a king in the Wolf Kingdom? Awesome! Now we finally have Delgado's backstory. Now, we shall soon hear Tigress' story for what happened with Jeia.
I can't wait for the next chapter!
The three guys immediately stood up and bowed, saying in unison, "Your highness."
"No, no, no." DElgado said. "Please, don't do that. I hate it really. I'm not even pure royal blood. Please, sit down and treat me like you treat each other. And I'm sure of it."
Hesitantly, the three sat back down and Po still tried to spark a fire.
Delgado said, "Here." Delgado picked two rocks and slit them together, creating a spark. He smiled as he saw the spark created a fire. "Like a pro do."
Po sat dumbfounded. "I knew that." He said indignantly.
Delgado laughed along with the other two guys. "So, anyway, I was trained to be a warrior to protect myself against bad guys and was taught some survival skills. Been doing that for the past 20 years I lived there. That was until something terrible happened." He frowned. "My village was attacked by Jeia and her black magic. That's it. She destroyed most of everything, but thankfully everyone was okay. But she threatened us to help her if we want the people to be alive. So, we followed her orders. She picked the warriors and left the villagers and royals alone. I haven't seen them ever since, which was a few months ago. I don't even know if my parents are alright, but since my father is fighter, I'm guessing they are fine. But they must be gravely worried about me. So, now you know my story."
"Wow, that's a lot for a fella like you, Delgado." Crane said.
"Yeah, but my biggest worry is-"
"Tigress!" Po shouted.
Delgado whipped around and saw Tigress standing up in front of her tent, leaning on a tree for support. She said with a smile, "I've been wondering about how your life was going."
"Tigress, you're alive!" Delgado shouted and ran to her in a second, hugging her.
"Yes, I am. And you're hugging me too tight." She said.
Delgado immediately let go and saw the wrappings around her stomach. "Are you alright?"
" Nothing terribly bad."
"Thank goodness." Delgado sighed.
"And," Viper spoke up. "Tigress got her memory back!"
The guys cheered. Tigress said, "The trip was crazy and so was I, huh?" They all agreed. "Okay, well, I got a plan to take the enemy down, once and for all. So, we have to get a move on. " Tigress said.
Delgado froze and glared at her. "Aren't you forgetting something? A certain story to tell your friends?"
"I can tell them later. Now, we have to get the enemy down, before she gets more power."
"Tigress," Delgado argued. "You promised and you are probably going to forget telling them after the fight. They deserve the truth, don't you think?" Tigress paused and looked to her friends. "And you need to heal a little bit longer, right?"
Tigress still stood and finally sighed. "Fine. Get around the fire and make yourselves comfortable." She took a deep breath and started to tell her story.
"Not exactly." Delgado said. "I can just barely make it out. I don't remember the face, only the voice and what the man said. I really do think he was my father though, hence he said 'son'."
"Can you tell us more about Jeia?" Crane asked.
"That's the part that's up to Tigress to tell you. But it's pretty obvious that we three had gotten into a fight that made us enemies. Jeia on one side, Tigress and I on the other." Delgado responded.
"So what happened after the fight?" Monkey asked.
"Well, I was actually gone in the middle of the fight. Let me explain."
Jeia and Delgado fought, one on one, trying to get the other animal to surrender. Then finally, their paws linked together and now was the time to test each other's strengths. But with Jeia's new power, Delgado was sure to lose. And the worst part was, Jeia was leading him to a cliff.
"So, dog, are you ready to truly suffer?" Young Jeia spat.
The pup still didn't give up. "Jeia, you have to understand that what we did wasn't intentional! We just wanted to fit in."
"It's too late for apologies, mutt." Jeia said. Delgado felt he cliff on his hind paws and looked to Jeia with horror. "Any last words?"
"You may end me, but you will never end my warrior spirit." Delgado growled.
And with that, Jeia pushed Delgado off. And Delgado fell.
"Oh my gosh!" Po exclaimed. "What happened next?!"
Delgado continued. "At the time, I thought I was going to end for good."
The little pup screamed, and was increasingly speeding to the ground. He covered his eyes and braced for impact. Until he heard a deep-pitched bark and he felt something grasp his body. Peaking through one paw, he saw that he stopped falling and was just above the ground.
"Let's get out of here!" A feminine voice said.
And suddenly, it hit him. Someone caught the pup in it's jaws and apparently was accompanied with a female wolf. And so, following the orders of the woman, the creature holding the pup ran on all fours following close behind the girl. The tiny dog realized that they were all in the forest, one side was the cliff he fell off of and the other full of trees. But the little one also noticed that the trees and rocks were falling all around them, signaling that an earthquake is taking place.
"We're almost there!" The female said.
Just when they were going to an open field, a huge tree had fallen before them. They had no time to lose. They immediately used their claws to get over it and into their village. Just in the edge of the cliff, a huge boulder had broken off and came hurdling towards them.
"Jump!" The woman yelled.
And they used their hind legs to push off and becuase they were on a hill, they tucked and rolled down. They had escaped just in time, for the boulder had smashed the tree into bits. Finally, they stopped rolling. The creature gently placed young Delgado on the ground and ran to the woman.
"Are you alright, my love?" He asked, helping the female.
"Fine, but we must get the child to the doctor at once. He is greatly injured." She said as she stood up on all four paws. She went over to the littly wolf and picked him up gently with her jaws. Then, the couple ran to their village.
"From there on, they took me to the doctor and I was patched up. They asked me questions about myself and where my parents are. I told them I was an orphan and they decided to adopt me. The surprising thing was that my new parents are the rulers of the Wolf Kingdom and I am next in line to rule."
The whole group finally arrived to the camp and quickly laid Tigress in her tent.
"Alright." Viper started. "Mantis and I will try to help Tigress' wound. You guys start the fire again to get some warmth."
So when the two left to care for Tigress, the rest began grabbing some sticks and dry leaves for the fire. They all sat around while Po rubbed the sticks together to create a spark.
"So," Delgado started, "We never really had a chance to introduce each other. I'm Delgado, to clear it up."
"Po. The bug is Mantis and the snake is Viper."
Delgado sat still for a moment. "Well...interesting names."
They all went quiet for a moment. "Delgado?" Po said and Delgado turned to him. "What's going on?"
Delgado feared this question. "Well...it's not my story to tell. It's Tigress'. All I can say though is that Jeia has been an enemy of ours since we were little."
"We?" Crane questioned.
"Yeah, we were both in the orphanage." Delgado said.
"Is there anything else you can tell us?" Monkey asked.
Delgado paused. "I may not be able to tell you her story...but I can tell you mine." He took a deep breathe. "It all started when I was just a pup."
The storm above grew louder and the lightening struck. One wolf running in the rain, carrying a sleeping puppy in it's mouth. The wolf looked around and still heard someone chasing it. The wolf ran faster as it began to rain. Finally, it found it's destination. The wolf carefully laid the blanket-wrapped pup on the doorstep.
"My son." The deep voice said. "Please, remember I am doing this to protect you." The wolf then stood up and was about to knock, but hesitated. It was the hardest thing he'd ever done. Finally, he knock and with one last nuzzle to the child, he ran off.
The care-taker then answered the door, but saw no one. Then, she looked to the ground and gasped. A pup. She carefully picked him up and went inside.
"At the time, I was only 5 or 6 years old. It still a bit blurry, I don't remember anything before that. So when the caretaker took me in, she saw I had fangs and claws, thinking I was a monster. So, she put me with another 'monster'."
The little pup was released into the room only a little while it was taken in. Just when the door closed, the pup woke up. The pup immediately jumped at the strange place it was in and tried to finds escapes, but the door was closed. The pup turned around and scratched the door, whimpering all the while. Finally after minutes of trying to get out, nothing. The poor one saw a figure in the corner, approching him. The little dog tried to get back to the corner as he could.
Then, the figure stopped. "Hi." A feminine voice said.
The pup stopped and looked to the figure, and saw it was a tiger. Being the young innocent pup he was, he stood up and greeted as well. "Hi! You seem nice! My name's Delgado! What's yours?"
"Tigress." The young female tiger said. "I have another friend here too. She's shy and she's hiding under the bed." Tigress gently said as she kneeled down under the bed. "Come out. He's nice."
With little hesitation, the black panther came out beside Tigress, who said, "This is Jeia."
YAYYYY!!!! :D :D You're back--with a lot of chapters and more awesomeness!!! So happy! We've missed you around here, T714!
Well, looks like Delgado will have to wait until he can finish Jeia later. Bummer. Hehe, no apology for Fred...nice.
Anyway, I'll keep reading and reviewing,
